Birds of the night

Just back from a holiday in Majorca I fancied another evening trip out to Savernake. With Pete I left home before eight and was on site in Savenake by around half past. Jay, Wren, Yellowhammer and Wood Pigeons were all seen or heard and at 21.20 a Nightjar briefly churred. A few minutes later I saw a flash of white across the clearing, maybe the wing patch of the Nightjar. A couple of minutes later it churred again. After this nothing and no sighting. On the way home we had great views of a fence sitting Barn Owl and then two brief glimpses of a Little Owl as it flew on the periphery of the headlights.
